BFA juried student exhibit on display at Craft Center through April 8

Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft will be hosting its annual Bachelor of Fine Arts juried student show through April 8.

This competitive, juried student exhibition highlights the best new work by TTU’s art students. Works from each studio are represented, including clay, fibers, glass, metals, painting and wood.

“The juried exhibition is a great experience for students,” said Gail Looper, gallery manager at the Craft Center. “They must go through the same competitive process as they would for any professional juried show.”

The 2007 Best of Show Award of $250 went to wood major, Miles Fields for his “Serpentine Pedestal,” and two merit awards in the amount of $50 each were presented to Cynthia Keegans and Thoryn Ziemba for their entries in ceramics and glass, respectively.

Winners were presented their awards at a reception on Friday, March 16.

The Appalachian Center for Craft is located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on Highway 56 and turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
